Card Sketch April #5

Wednesday, April 30, 2008

The last day of April! I am so ready to start a new month. This weeks card sketch is below. Lots of room to make it your own and go with the flow (like I did). The digital template is available free in my store for a LIMITED TIME! Grab it while you can!

I opted for creative license this week as I changed the sketch a bit. Instead of squares I decided on 2 strips of paper. The patterned paper was too busy for the squares really. Also I did some penwork around the edge to finish off the card. Used the new white pen from Ranger, awesome pen!
